believe that elizabeth and i both agree that there needs to be comprehensive health care reform in america. but the kind of comprehensive health care reform is what really is going to be the most important item. and i hope that it's a bipartisan one that i think can be passed energy. >> larry: elizabeth, can that happen without the government being involved in a quazi insurance company of its own? >> we can pass health care reform without what is commonly referred to as a public option, which means to compete with your private insurers, with united health care or aetna or blue cross/blue shield, you would have the federal government offering you the option of insuring yourself through the government plan. i think it would be a huge mistake to pass any kind of reform without that public option. for a lot of reasons. one of the things we want to do is make certain we're providing to 46 million americans who are uninsured to 25 million who are underinsured, a way of getting reliable, transparent and cost effective, accessible -- cost accessible insurance. the way you do that is make certain y

. it was fought to make america be america for all its citizens. these were america's civil rights leaders. >> host: how would you describe this period in the 1950's to the young african-americans who only read about it through history books? and we should point out the year you were born, 1954. >> guest: exactly. what was interesting to me is i went on a book tour for "eyes on the prize" realizing how many people hadn't lived through this year, and this was of course than the late 80's and early 90's. so today it is overwhelming. most americans today, a quarter of the population are under 18. they have no concept. with a new is martin luther king is a hero or to be viewed as a hero, viewed positively although we get some younger people who think that he's just an image, they want a more militant figure. like malcolm x that would stand up, sort of the defiant black lace. then you get people who don't understand. they -- something like a colored blanking fountain, just bizarre or you get white kids who don't understand how recent so many of these indignities and limits in terms of education

more bureaucrats, to control more of america through politicians. that is a fundamentally different world. we believe we ought to develop american energy and american technology so america is able to keep the money at home, both for national security and for economic growth. they believe you ought to raise taxes massively on american energy, cripple the american economy and make sure you are dependent forever on countries like venezuela and saudi arabia, a fundamentally different model. we believe you ought to develop green technology. i wrote "contract with europe," but we also recognize there are 240 million vehicles in the current fleet that will require current technology fuels for the next generation. they believe we ought to make a magic switch overnight to technology that does not yet exist at a price we cannot imagine using things we don't know about from companies that have not yet been formed fundamentally.

on the cnn express across america talking to you about your health coverage and what you want to see in reform. ali, what are they telling you? >> reporter: and i'm here in kansas city, missouri, with the cnn express. i've been hearing a lot from people across the country. we've started in georgia, went through tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, and now into kansas and then into iowa. we're finding out what people are feeling about health care. the debate, as we've seen, has been heated in town hall meetings all over the country. when we stopped in paducah, kentucky, i had a very civilized, very normal conversation with some folks about their fears and hopes for health care reform, christine. have a listen to this. >> reporter: we are hearing different things from people wherever we're going but i haven't found too many people around here who are opposed to reforming health care. >> i'm for the idea but i don't think that congress and the president have done a good job of disseminating information. i'm just hearing a lot of talk. >> reporter: what about you? >> i think right no
need health care in america. one of the people who really got the people have asked me, what was it like? i tell people that barack obama, the most thing that i will say is driving him is that he watched his white mother died because of inefficiency in health care in america. i think that is the number one driving force, that he does not want to see that happen to americans, white and black, across the board. and he is going to fight with everything he has got because he watched it. he does not have his mother anymore, he does not have his father anymore, and i think he wants people like me who get laid off, 10,000 of us, and know that we need health care in america. thank god for people like sharon brower, the senator who is working hard -- like sherrod brown, the senator who is working hard on behalf of the american people. i worked 45 years of my life and got laid off. people have no idea what it is like to be laid off in america if you have never been laid off. we need this, and i thank god for barack obama, sherrod brown, in the people who are fighting for our rights to
care in america. the previous caller hit the nail on the head when he said that wall street has taken over our health care, taking away from the people and giving it to the dollar profits. now we have a mess. and thank you, sis and. guest: as -- thank you, c-span. guest: it has not been in a huge issue for health reform so far, it has ballooned in the background. i think that it is something that could crop up, especially when the finance bill comes out. host: ted, calling on the democratic line from clinton, maryland. caller: good morning? can you hear me? host: yes, weekend. -- we can. caller: un this lady keep repeating the fact that the government -- you and this lady keep repeating the fact that the government ran out of money for cash for clunkers, but that does not mean that it was not successful. the larger issue is that the american people are being used and misused by the press and public authority. we have a health care bill in this country of $10.50 trillion per year. 30% goes to the insurance companies. that is $770 billion. that money could be used to help the president

's reaffirming of america in terms of its values and ideals and the power of the constitution feared that to me is the greatest joy for any writer and journalist and that's the story and try to tell in my books. >> host: we talked about the books you have written. what is next? >> guest: and house -- i am fascinated with malcolm x and wondering if it is time to look again at malcolm x and also given the tremendous diversity of the american population today i'm interested in the founding fathers of this new america. we have seen books about the accounting bothers of america as it emerged in 1700's. i think this time again is to look at a founding fathers of this new america and one represents to the world. >> host: dui d.c. to read about these issues or is it a challenge? >> guest: writing is the greatest intellectual exercise. my -- trained a boxer's nose around people the exercise and had to show tremendous courage on their side, but remained engaging in a buck and the ideas getting those ideas to be real on the page so others can understand that and engage them to me it is my maximum energy a
or every industry across the country. the government has to be in there to keep corporate america honest? the steel industry, for example? you pick one and name one. the american people are saying we want health care reform. the republicans are saying we want health care reform, but we don't want a government takeover. we don't want socialized medicine and national health care. >> those words are frightening to a lot of people. let me ask you this about a moderate forum, what congressman cooper just mentioned. what do you think of a co-op? >> well, chris, i'm not sure we know what that co-op is. kent conrad has talked about it. all the machinations going on in the senate finance committee, it's all been kept close to the vest. i don't think the american people really know what this co-op would look like. i want to look at it closely. and certainly i will take -- just like senator shelby said on sunday, let's take a look at it and let's make sure. i think anything is better than this government option that's in there competing with an unfair advantage on an unequal playing field. >> let m
daughter had achieved. what a great story it is for america. and what a great story it is that president obama would give us a chance to consider judge sotomayor to serve as the first hispanic woman on the united states supreme court. for many who oppose judge sotomayor, her life achievements and her judicial record are just not good enough. after pouring over 3,000 court decisions and hundreds of her speeches, judge sotomayor's critics focus their opposition primarily, not exclusively, but primarily on one case, the rich ricci and one sentence from one speech. i hope someone was keeping track how many times those three words, wise latina woman, were quoted during the course of this hearing. senator after senator asked her what did you really, really, really mean with those three words? over and over and over again. we are senators who live in a world of decisions and votes everyday. and we understand when our decisions and votes are questioned and challenged often in a an unfair fashion. if we vote in a way that's controversial we ask that people be fair and judge us on our life's work,
, but more for an america that they had left at home and also for a changing america, one that the ford motor company, their employers, their employer, was largely responsible with dispatching. there's something about the amazon when one reads the chronicles of the amazon. the amazon almost induces people to wax philosophically or existentially in a very florid allegory about the enormous nature of the amazon, how it seduces man to impose his will and only to render that will implement. think of verna heard sog's interview in burden of dreams, just the way that people talk about the amazon as this place and the of moral meaning and very florid. there is something about though the men and women that ford sent down, most of them from michigan, a lot of them also from the upper peninsula down to the amazon. they were almost immune or inoculated. they had a certain midwestern stubborn little less that refused to see the amazon in those six essential terms. was actually relief reading about it, but then they would wax nostalgic but again certain nostalgia for receiving in a lost united states. it
, about 50 pages. i read them, and at the time at rutgers, i'd teach a class called "murder in america." when i saw that he had been murdered, the intrigue of it was that his three doctors were three of the best physicians and the united states and they really messed up the investigation and the autopsy. knowing how hot forensics this, i thought this would be really interesting to apply this to an old murder case and then to probe the other areas of the case that were so surprising. >> did you decide right there on the spot to do that? >> i did. i told my wife that it hit me in the head. she said that that was a great idea and i should pursue that. >> how long did it take them to buy your book? >> i think a couple of months and then it took nearly a year to write it. >> how did you go about writing it? >> very carefully. i went down to williamsburg to the college of william and mary to the rockefeller library and i went to the state library of virginia in richmond and the richmond historical association. then, the rutgers library and a couple of other places. i did a lot of medical res

in the hearts and minds of america. >> we're talking about raising that threshold. if anyone has a problem with someone making $250,000 adjusted gross income, probably it's going to be $500,000 when we're all done. this is a very, very, very wealthy in our kendry, not the people of the middle class or struggling to be in the middle class or hoped to at one point attain a higher income. >> are you surprised at the demeanor of people at these town hall meetings? we haven't seen tape like this, events like this, in 20, 30, 40 years in this country. i mean, you've got to go back to the vietnam war to see this kind of public passion that's been out there. >> well, you know, i live in a walking town hall in my district. when i see people on the streets let me know what they feel. it's done with respect and mutual respect. i have tremendous respect for my constituency and they have for me. i think that's -- regardless of party. that's what's missing right now in this debate. it's not about having a discourse, it's about shutting down meetings, it's about being disruptive. and that's outside the a

, here's a look at some other stories making news "early today" in america. pennsylvania police are searching for a woman who used pepper spray on a clerk when authorities say he tried to stop her from shoplifting. the employee became suspicious after he claimed to see the woman putting dvds into a handbag. when he confronted her, she pulled out a can of mace and sprayed him in the face before running off. >>> when the masked men entered the establishment, it was full of off-duty police officers who were in town for a golf tournament. needless to say, the suspect was quickly tackled and arrested. >>> it was a sticky situation for a woman in phoenix who discovered thousands of bees living under her bathtub. animal experts were called in to remove the hive by cutting a hole in her house. free honey may sound like a sweet opportunity, but officials say in time the bees would have become far more dangerous. >>> and in california, officials are warning some people to stay indoors after a black bear was spotted in a residential neighborhood. the animal estimated at 350 pounds was even

on as the president of the united states tries to say, hey, america, i have it right, here's the plan, please accept it. it's not going well. why is it that it's not going well? is it the republican's fault? perhaps it's not. steve: perhaps it is the fact that the president and his people are selling it the wrong way. and, in fact, if you take a look at what's going on right now, there's kind of an intraparty war going on because over the weekend kathleen cebellius said that government option was not an essential part of the president's plan and the far left suddenly goes, wait a minute, this isn't going to pass without that. plus you look at how there's been the model on that and how the president has tried selling it essentially in the beginning as it's going to be about costs and stuff like that. he didn't really show americans how it's going to impact them. that's been the real disconnect. i've already got insurance and i like my insurance. you want me to change everything? how's it going to impact me? the president has failed in that respect. gretchen: there are three competing bills right now.

to control more of america through politicians. that is a fundamentally different world. we believe you ought to develop american energy and american technology so america's able to keep the money at home, both for national security and for economic growth. they believe you ought to raise taxes massively on american energy, cripple the american economy, and make sure that you're dependent forever on countries like venezuela and saudi arabia, a fundamentally different model. we believe you ought to develop green technology. i wrote a book called "contract with europe," describing a green conservatism, but we also recognize there are 240 million vehicles in the current fleet that are going to require current technology fuels for the next generation. they believe he we ought to make a magic switch overnight to technology that is not -- that does not yet exist, at a price that we can't imagine using things we don't know about, from companies that have not yet been formed. fundamentally different model.
